Yeah, for one sachet plus shipping it will be almost $40. I'm not sure I want it that badly - 25 euros for shipping on a single pack of yeast? WTF? I'm going to try to find a US source, then I'll bank it so I can pull it out whenever I want.
wow...WTF indeed. I don't know what changed, but I sure as hell didn't get that high a quote when I checked into it last year...nowhere near
There must be a domestic source somehwhere. BEVERAGE PEOPLE used to carry the Vierka brand, but don't seem to any longer.
But you definitely have the right idea...once you find a source you only really need to buy it once.
It would by nice if Wyeast or White could carry this strain. It shouldn't be that difficult for them to source it, and I think it would be very popular once people try it.
I think a decent approximation though might be the Chablis strain combined with Sherry Flor, since Tokaji has characteristics at least somewhat evoke both of these.
